Sarkozy suggests that chateaux offer luxury hotel space
Posted on Saturday 09 October 2010
There are plenty of opportunities for luxury travel to Europe, but France might be adding another fancy option to its variety of hotels.
In an effort to boost tourism and the country's economy, the Associated Press (AP) reports that President Nicolas Sarkozy is suggesting that they transform a number of French chateaux into luxury hotels.
Sarkozy commissioned Senator Alberic de Montgolfier to draw up a report detailing different ways that the country's famous attractions could generate more revenue, according to the news source, and Indians may be able to enjoy their Paris holidays in a lavish new venue.
De Montgolfier included chateaux in both Chambord and Rambouillet.
Chateaux can refer to anything from a manor house to a castle, both of which offer an exciting and elegant aspect to a vacation in France. They are large in size and often are surrounded by breathtaking views of the countryside, which would give Indian tourists a beautiful backdrop for their sunset dinners or walks through the gardens.
Among the other luxury hotel ideas to improve the French economy, the senator has suggested that they promote the historical landmarks for feature films.
